Founded in 1981, the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival, Inc. is an independent, non-profit group of volunteers with no paid staff, no office space, and whose purpose is to raise funds for local community projects. 100% of the net proceeds from their annual fundraising event go to designated charitable agencies. The Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival has donated millions of dollars to local charities and has touched the lives of thousands.
Each year, hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers magically transform the historic Burr Homestead in Fairfield, Connecticut into a celebration of the Christmas season. This year, our 2010 recipient is The Burroughs Community Center and the theme for this year's Festival is "Celebrating Community."
Local interior and floral designers donate their time, talent, and energy creating elegantly decorated rooms. Every space in the Burr Homestead is transformed into a Holiday Showcase. Each holiday vignette is filled with beautiful handmade wreaths, trees, garlands, and holiday decorations that are available for you to purchase. Their Holiday Boutique offers a splendid selection of unique gifts and ornaments to help you with your holiday shopping. Floral designers are available in the Live Wreath area to create fresh evergreen decorations in a variety of wreath sizes made especially for your home from an extensive selection of trimmings and festive designer ribbons.
